Example text

I’m not Sylvia. ” I said she was trying to remember what it was like when she was little and her mummy and daddy had terrible rows in Italian and she had been too frightened to bear it. Sylvia was moved by my reconstruction and wanted me to tell her more about what had happened in the past. At this stage of her treatment, during part of each session she would repeatedly enact a drama in a particularly urgent manner. I understood this as a request for me to reconstruct past events, which were at first more rows between her fighting patents.

This is likely to be the case whenever a repetitive preoccupation with monsters is concerned. In practice it means that details of monsters can often give us clues to the people or events which have aroused the terror and rage which the monsters represent. Stages in the recovery from trauma Adam and Sylvia were both freed from their repetitive pre-occupation with monsters by recognising the traumas which the monsters had disguised. The analytic work had provided the understanding which solved the mystery, laid the ghosts and broke the spell.

Similar help for Sylvia’s mother freed her to lift the tabu on speaking to Sylvia about her father and his violence. Changes in their parents’ attitudes were beneficial to both children, although the crucial changes in the children’s own attitudes were independently achieved by them in their psychotherapy. It was their own understanding of the meaning of monsters which solved the mystery and broke the spell of repetition. The therapist’s role in helping children to understand external reality The remainder of this paper focuses on the technical issue of the therapist’s role in enabling children to recognise traumatic or adverse aspects of external reality, when these adverse aspects are contributed by their parents.
